Family Maps of Union Parish

I am posting this book on here again as well as the main page because so many people are still asking for it. So here it is.

I have this book and use it frequently. I just used it on the previous post to point out a long ago town in Union Parish. It is a must have for Union Parish researchers.

This is a book of maps, 98 maps, from the U. S. Bureau of Land Management, of Union Parish from 1820-1920.  It is great for finding where your ancestors lived or owned property. You can also see their neighbors. There is an index of owners with each map. It also includes cemeteries, roads, rivers, creeks, streams, railroads, and towns. In Union Parish you will find Alabama Landing, Bemis, Bernice, Bethel Springs, Brantley Landing, Canbeal, Cane Ridge, Carroll, Cecil, Cherry Ridge, Clayton, Colsons, Conway, Copley, Cox Ferry, Crossroads, Culbertson, D’Arbonne, De Loutre, Dean, Downsville, Evergreen, Farmerville, Gravel, Haile, Holmesville, Hooker Hole, Hunt, Junction City, Laran, Lillie, Linville, Litroe, Loch Lomond, Lockhart, Loco, Marion, Monroe, Moselys Bluff, Mount Union, Oakland, Ouachita City, Pisgah, Point, Port Union, Quigley, Randolph, Rocky Branch, Rum Center, Sadie, Shiloh, Shiloh Landing, Smurney, Spearsville, Spencer, Taylortown, Terrills, Thirteen Points Landing, Truxno, Tugwell, Upco, Walnut Lane, Weldon, West Sterlington and Wilhite.

As I was building my family tree I found one of the best sources of information was obituaries.

There are 7 Facts About Your Ancestors Found in Obituaries and Death Notices:

1. Date of death, name of cemetery, date and place of the funeral and burial
2. Name, place, and year of birth
3. Names of children, where they lived, and their position in the family’s birth order
4. Names of the towns and how long they lived in each one
5. Age of spouse at death and how long ago that was
6. Details on the longevity of parents and grandparents
7. Count of descendants, by generation

And much more!

I was fortunate to have a Grandmother and Mother who cut out and saved obituaries and newspaper articles that had anything remotely connected to our family. I found them to be extremely valuable.

This book is an excellent resource for anyone, African American or Caucasian, who seek to find information on deceased ancestors during the period covered in the book.
